No-Fee Apartment of the Week: $2,545 one-bedroom in Long Island City

By Lucy Cohen Blatter  | February 22, 2013 - 3:31PM

This $2,545 Long Island City one-bedroom is geared toward apartment hunters who like to plan ahead: It's not available until April 1 and can be rented for 3 months or one year at a slightly higher price.

Pros: The apartment is bright, with great views of the 59th Street Bridge and Manhattan. The apartment and the building are new and the building has a roof deck, gym, concierge and more.

Cons: It looks small. Also, the rent on the listing isn't exactly accurate. The $2,545 rent will apply from April through June (as it seems this is a case of a broken lease). Anyone interested in a one-year lease starting in April will have to pay $2,625 per month.  Additionally, we presume, the little dog in the photo does not transfer with the apartment, so you'll have to get your own.
